1940 - 2006


A scholarship has been established in loving memory of my beloved husband 


The Jay Coupe '62 Memorial Scholarship Fund was established at Princeton University.  Princeton had a profound impact on Jay, not just as a student but, throughout his entire life. It was one of Jay's greatest desires, and his last request of me, to establish a scholarship fund at Princeton.  It was his hope that he might help, in some way, pass on the "Princeton experience" to others.  This fund will benefit undergraduate students based on financial need.  The students must be active members of The Princeton Nassoons (the premier a cappella singing group at Princeton of which Jay was a devoted member) or students majoring in music, foreign languages or international studies/political science, all great passions of his.   

If you would like to honor Jay's remarkable life, please send your tax deductible donation to:
